United Kingdom is the home of football and the islands feature more football clubs than pretty much any other part of the world. With so many clubs in existence, it is no wonder that new football stadiums are being built across England, Wales and Scotland all the time and the old ones are getting overhauled to increase capacity and give even more fans a chance to enjoy even greater football shows.

We take a look at some of the stadiums currently under construction or reconstruction and bring you the latest news regarding the great football pitches you will see some of your favorite UK clubs playing at in the near future.

White Hart Lane –Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur have been in the very top of English football for many years and with all the success they are experiencing, the club have decided it is right time to build a new stadium to increase the capacity and give their fans something to get excited about.

The new White Hart Lane is being built partly at the site of the old one and the preparations for the operation have started in 2015. 2017 is likely the year that majority of the stands will be ready and the club is expected to share a ground with another Premier League side for one season until the new White Hart Lane is opened.

It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to sell naming rights to the new stadium, as the cost of over £750 million that is floating around will need to be offset somehow. Selling the name of the stadium may help with this a great deal, but some clubs have decided to opt against this as they thought it would hurt the soul of the team.

Scunthorpe United

Not nearly as glamorous as the new White Hart Lane, the new Scunthorpe United stadium is set to be built in the near future as well. The League One side are expected to construct a 12,000 capacity stadium relatively close to their old home and an initial deal with the Lucent Group is said to have been reached to build it as a part of one of their bigger construction projects.

The entire project is set to be priced at £25 million and will bring some freshness to the club in their hopes of progressing into the more competitive English leagues.

Brentford Community Stadium

Another London team planning a grand opening of a brand new home is Brantford FC. The £250 million stadium and residential complex is meant to represent a long term solution for the aged Griffin Park which has been the home of the club for many years.

Financial crisis that hit the club saw the plan of building a new ground abandoned back in 2010, but the new owners reinvigorated the club and brought new hope for the pitch being built. The project is now a reality that is set to happen during 2017 as the new stadium should feature 20,000 seats and a brand new home for the Championship side.

With the location less than one mile away from their current Griffin Park stadium, the new ground is sure to be a great success in the eyes of the club supporters. Griffin Park will, in turn, be demolished, with residential buildings taking its place.

More Stadiums To Come

Across the UK, a new club is thinking of building a new home every day. It will be interesting to keep track of each team with a new stadium after it is built and how the new pitch is impacting their play, and you can do just that at http://openodds.com/ on a daily basis.

Keep track of the teams we listed as they move into their new homes and remember that while a new home is usually a good thing, it may take some time to adjust to. If your home team is changing their stadium, don’t be too sad if they take a few games to really get the feel for the new grass.
